James Blake‘s album dropped last week, and it’s hit us all. 17 tracks of, well, Jame Blake, ’nuff said. Today came a beautifully hypnotic visual to one of my favourite tracks on the record.

Aaron is a dream pop singer from London. Her latest release Easy, an ethereal piece of music; spacey funk guitars, downtempo drums and pretty vocals. With 12.5K Soundcloud streams this month, there is definitely a reason why people are listening – me included! Her earlier releases Strong and Kids are also sure fire pop bangers. Nice … More Aaron – Easy

He layers samples on samples, synths on synths with grooving hip-hop/trap beats that get us mere mortals bobbing along. This track is like a musical shoutout to analog gamers of the 90s and early noughties. Buy Sam’s latest EP ‘Escapism’ … More Sam Gellaitry – Zircon Caves

I have very quickly become a fan of O Mer – an electronic artist hailing from Brooklyn, with roots in Tel Aviv. His music style is really unique; an awesome combination of vocal layering with rising synths, middle eastern guitar licks and poignant melodies. These positives are all highlighted in his single ‘Now I’m Alive’. … More O Mer – Now I’m Alive
